Colt Ammo
 
So, what is this stuff, and is it worth buying?

For the M14 Nope stick with Brass.

I would use it for a door stop only.
 
Plinking made easy! Shoot as much as you want on your next practice session. This Colt® zinc-plated Ammo cuts down on price, and is also magnetic (steel case) for easy pickup at the range.

About the same cost as Prvi Partizan, the top Serbian munitions manufacturer.

Why are you highlighting that the casing is magnetic?

Side of the box says CJSB Barnaul plant.
That's in Russia.
That's a pass in my book.

Read the side of the box. Colt ammo is Barnaul, Russian, steel cased, the worst ammo on earth. Shoot it only if you can't find anything else and the zombies are eating your front door. JMHO.

Well, OK, maybe not the worst, maybe Pakistani is worse, but it's down there...

Bad news to a Colt collector - guess they stopped caring about their image.

The Zombies have been outside my door for a few years now! LOL! If I had to I would shoot anything if it came down to it!

That's what happens when the company name is bought up by someone else. The company name goes down the drainage.

Colt has not actually "made" a single round of any ammunition since (probably) around 1873. You might find an occasional (and collectible) box of 1960's "COLT" marked WAX BULLETS for "Quick-Draw" competition. Again, not actually made by Colt, but interesting because they are (probably) the only "name" ammunition box that says ".45 LONG COLT" instead of what the round is ACTUALLY NAMED (.45 COLT). The headstamp of these cases are (IIRC) properly marked ".45 COLT." Black-Hills and (now) Barnaul makes the Colt licensed rifle ammo (.223 and .308).

Colt has also "branched out" into Taiwan made airsoft pistols..

Ammunition NOT recommended for your rifle:
• Avoid using surplus ammo tha tis “loose” or “bulk” – is is inconsitant in size and can be reloads.
• Avoid using steel case ammo, it is VERY hard on your chamber and can reduce the life span of your rifle.
• Do not use “ light Magnum” type ammo.
• Do not use soft point (SP) ammo, the lead shavings can get into the action and jam it up.
• We do not recommend the use of any cast bullets.

Pretty sure it is the Silver Bear 308 ammo in a different box. It will work but id rather have PRVI. Keep the steel cased ammo in your AK.
